Portland and Whistler and my last week of classes at UBC :(

A weekend in Portland and two weekends in Whistler, it's been a busy November!

Wow, November is seriously the busiest month, I've had no time to study! But I have had the best month with so many trips: Rocky Mountains, Portland in the US and Whistler!

We made the 8 hour trek to Portland, Oregon, US by hiring a car and we spent 3 days there. Mostly we shopped (no sales tax in Portland, winning!) but we managed to fit in a NBA game, seeing the Portland Trailblazers beat the Chicago Bulls.




The past two weekends have been spent in Whistler! It's so crazy that you can drive an hour and a half and you have a ski resort, so awesome! We went up the first weekend with the UBC Ski and Snow Board Club for the annual 'Condo Cram'. Imagine 136 people crammed into a hotel right in the middle of the village, it was crazy fun! And I went skiing for the second time in my life, after lots of falls I can somewhat go down a slope properly now haha.




The second weekend we went up with a bunch of exchange students and crammed lots of people into a hotel room as staying in the Village is so expensive. We stayed for 4 days, great way to start the study week before exams!




Can't believe my classes have ended at UBC now and it's only exams to go! It is crazy how quickly the semester has flown by, don't want to face the prospect of returning home just yet, but not to fear, so much more travel planned! Can't wait to go explore the East coast of Canada after we spend Christmas at Whistler, there is so much more to look forward to! Hope you guys are all well, I'll be home before you know it xx
